First things first: come on, crank up the music!
And now: the necessary gadgets.
I’d say the wall mounted player by Muji was an instant classic - I love how it recedes into the white of the wall. Especially since you need an actual CD, it’s a little strange how rare they’ve become these days. And honestly, it’s so much fun to turn it on and off by yanking the cord on the bottom (trust me on this).
The other player that caught my eye the very instant I spotted it for the first time is the Jambox series - fun colors, fun geometrics, fun everything.
And I really don’t care if it’s the giant one …
… or the tiny player you can slip in your jeans pocket (if it weren’t for the price tag … ouch!):
The wonderful Benedict Cumberbatch, singing. And playing the piano.
For those of you who haven’t seen the whole movie yet: this touching and tender scene is from “August. Osage County" (with stunning performances by Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Juliette Lewis, among others).
P.S.: … wanna listen to him reading a Sherlock Holmes story? You’re welcome.
Clouds. Wherever I look these days, I see clouds.
And cloud-like patterns.
On dresses with a soft dip dye print, abstract pastels, one that looks like a sunny summer sky, and one that resembles grey marble.
And on long and short suits and jackets as well … with a slight reference to the ubiquitous Ikat pattern, which is how Acne interpreted it:
Well, that’s what life is all about. Eventually. Probably. Yeah, most certainly.
And if it’s just to redirect us to:
a) … this utterly fantastic music clip from the same movie, starring Zooey Deschanel
and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, displaying their fancy dance moves and all.
It’s decided: each of my keys is now getting its own tag. Just so that I can put all of these fun key thingies to good use.
You know these old-fashioned hotel room key pendants? I always wanted to have one of those, but they are too bloody heavy.
But these reinterpretations by Three Potato Four, with numbers printed on them and all, are close enough. Plus with the added bonus of making you a member of the “Rebel Racer Society”.
Or the “Sea Scouts”:

Oh my, what a fragile piece, “The Moon Song” from “Her” by the ethereal Karen O (here's the complete duet with Ezra Koenig; and if you want to listen to the full soundtrack score by Arcade Fire: there you go).
But since I couldn’t decide on the version, here’s another beautiful one - with director Spike Jonze joining her on the guitar:
Not sure if you are sick and tired of all the hipster beards – or still kinda amused?
Here’s the absolutely most hilarious take on facial hair. Ever. I promise.
For his daily photo project “Will it Beard”, Pierce Thiot sticks all sorts of things in his, well, face.
Straws, slinkies, dinosaurs, floss, toothpicks, spaghetti, paper umbrellas, you name it (I mean … just take a look at the archive!)
Men w/ beard AND self-irony are the best.
P.S.: The flowers above are a subtle salute to the blooming spring outside.
In other words: just dive in.
Phew, this is one cool bedding. Preferably used for beds in huge white lofts, of course.
It’s designed by the wonderfully crazy people of “Snurk" in the Netherlands. Their trademark is to turn different materials and surfaces into photo prints, be it cable knits, cobble stones, or crumpled cardboard. The price depends on the size, the 140x220 version is ca. 59,95 Euros.
(Ok, not all of the prints are my taste, but the Astronaut would be very cool for a kid, and this is a really surprsing idea for lovers of plain white sheets. You’ll see, I promise!)
